Damien
Father Figure
[Verse 1]
Yeah, I'm that rapper from your city
With my mind in the sky, and the att**ude is gritty
Just trying to make million, before the new millennium
The way is irrelevant, I'll even sell my kidney

I'll constantly talk about how I'm gonna make it
When I take off as rocket with a label in my pocket
And I'm never being modest, when I call myself a prophet
By the end of next week I'll be spotted in a spaceship

(Good gracious), I'm gettin' famous
And my mama she told me I'm amazing
No debating, I'm practically the greatest
But for now I'm all about a day job and my payments

'Cause my sh*t's great, so at this rate
I'll get my big pay, just by selling mixtapes
'Cause I see more bars than an inmate
And fans are in my yard like I was selling milkshake

[Hook]
Day after day, slowly paving the way
Keep on grinding and climbing 'cause you know I ain't no quitter
Breaking away and it's safely to say
I gotta build a foundation of patience and be a father figure

[Verse 2]
Do I rap for the likes, or do I even like rap
Or am I just addicted like a drunkard with his night cap
Or am I dreaming like a fat chick dream of thigh gaps
Or am I just easy to sidetrack

I'm fast like a motherf**kin' flash when I dash on the tracks
And I crash like a blast from the past
Mastered the magic of ratchedy rapping the baddest of rappers what happened with that
Well guess I'm living in a bubble
That I'm bulging with my muscles and really like to rumble
And people with real problems ridicule my struggles
Try being white and cripwalk and never tumble

They tell me to reconsider and see the larger picture
That I was never meant for the stars and glitter
That I should stop dressing like a Harlem wigger
Drive my station wagon and be a father figure

[Hook x2]
Day after day, slowly paving the way
Keep on grinding and climbing 'cause you know I ain't no quitter
Breaking away and it's safely to say
I gotta build a foundation of patience and be a father figure
